A Picture Per Day

We were very busy over the 4th of July, but not in our typical Ella centered way. In fact, Ella was away with her grandparents from Wednesday night to Saturday morning. Normally we would have been clueless about how to entertain ourselves without her for so long, but this weekend we had event after eventse to attend to, so it flew by. I don't want to overwhelm anyone, especially because if you follow me on Instagram you were already flooded with photos this weekend! So, I'll keep it to one picture per day :) 

On Wednesday night, we got dressed & went to dinner on Lake Ontario at one of our favorite local restaurants, The Pelican's Nest. We rarely go out to eat anymore, as we're focussing on saving up some money, but the next day was our anniversary & it was a beautiful night, so we decided to go for it. 

On Thursday, we headed to Conesus Lake for a party at one of my friends' lake house. The lake hosts an annual ring of fire that I've attended before, but this party was huge! I definitely didn't expect it to have an open bar, two bands, a roasted pig & thousands of dollars worth of fireworks! My friend's family went in with two of their neighbors & I cannot tell you how much fun it was!  We had the best time & stayed the night in that tent up there, right on the water. It was the first time I'd "camped" in years... but I wasn't in the state of mind to care too much. 

On the 4th, we recovered from the 3rd... No, we actually headed out to another lake for a family wedding. The wedding was held at Bristol Harbor, which overlooks Canandaigua Lake. I ate cake, drank iced tea, and drove everyone else home... but I still had a great time on the dance floor! 

Saturday morning I headed to my parents house to reunite with Ella! Bad news... she wanted nothing to do with me! She was having way too much fun with Grammy & Gramps! So... I made the best of it & laid out with my sister :) That night we had the usual suspects over for a BBQ that was ah-mazing! 

Finally, the Peanut & I headed home yesterday to see her daddy! When we arrived, he had the whole backyard set up for fun! We splashed & drove Ella's car & played Ella's new game - Ring Around the Rosey! 

Now it's time to get into our summer routine & get back on track with our eating around here. The beach trip will be here before we know it!
